Seahorse salt cellar
May 20, 2011 § Leave a comment
The one time that I’ve gone to Catbird‘s store in Williamsburg was the one day they decided to close and do inventory. Bah. I’ve always loved their jewelry selection online, from the stag rings to the frog skeleton necklace, but I noticed lately that they’ve expanded into housewares and non-jewelry gifts.
Take this whimsical salt cellar by Flotsam and Jetsam for instance. Italians say that when you cook pasta, you should salt the water you cook it in so it’s just this side of the Mediterranean. The seahorse motif is pretty fitting then, isn’t it? Personally, I tend to salt from the container but I could also see this little piece serving as a really pretty albeit somewhat pricey dish to hold rings and charms.
Note: this barrage of random jewelry and house ware coveting is what happens when I have some extra time on my hands.
